My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Duffy has black scabs on his skin. First I am going to ask a few more questions to get a better idea of what is going on-

-Can you send a picture of the scabs? Skin problems are so much easier to understand if I can see them.

-how long have you noticed the scabs?

-what breed is Duffy?

-any other changes in Duffy like change in weight, vomiting, diarrhea, not eating well, hairloss, etc?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you today.
